The state of Virginia has one of its best groups of offensive line talent ever in the 2019 class with multiple power 5 linemen including Jesse Hanson, Antoine Whitner, Donovan Beaver, and Jakai Moore. All of them except Moore had offers from Virginia Tech entering their Junior Day.
However, that changed yesterday.
Jakai Moore received a Virginia Tech offer today at the beginning of the Hokies' Junior Day yesterday. When we asked Moore about his visit, he told us that "it was great. There were a lot of very down to earth people and I enjoyed my time there." One of the most notable parts of his visits came towards the end of Junior Day as he told us that "around the end, we went to the gym and shot around,and the coaches got to know the players more and talk to them."
Jakai Moore's offer list is solid and includes Virginia Tech, South Carolina, Louisville, Maryland, and Old Dominion.
Right now, South Carolina appears to be the frontrunner in his recruitment as the Gamecocks are standing out for him and recruiting him the hardest. However, the Hokies should start to gain some ground after offering him and having a strong visit with him yesterday.
